    We're going to be welcoming DJ G Mint and Retro P, as we're excited to have two very cool spinning performances at 10pm and 3am to keep us jamming!

    In addition to the many gaming stations at Cyber Ops, we've connected with Best Buy and members of this video game community to offer an entire 6v6 AND 4v4 multiplayer battle station! Look for tons of MW2 and Halo 3 on professional level 22' LED TVs here people! Bring your headphones and check our Equipment Sign-Up Discussion in the GoG Forum for more information Shocked

    We've connected with Joe's Photobooth, who will be providing a neat chance for us to capture the fun in our own photobooth, right inside of the Lime Lounge!

    We've also announce that the New Super Mario Bros. Wii will be the main title being played at this PRE-GoG 5,000 Party, so look for a neat/unique, backwards/outside gaming challenge Wink

    I have to get a haircut at like 2:45 and then run home and take a shower since I have basketball that afternoon so I maybe be a few minutes late to the pre-party

    The pre-party was all-ages, I had thought. Maybe that changed?

    I should be bringing ZMaine up here, as usual, but I dunno if we'll be attending the pre-party. I'd like to get right to CyberOps so I can stake out a spot, get equipment setup, and make sure there are no unexpected technical difficulties regarding this stream I'm supposed to be doing. (I'm still doing that, right?)

    I'll be there without a doubt, but was wondering if it was cool if I met up with you at the Lime lounge or if it was still set for 21 and up.

    Oh HELL yes! I'm over here in Oklahoma, but I usually take road trips to see family in NY and Alabama. I'm going to end up bugging everybody to take a detour. XD
